Facts about Snowflakes
If you are learning about snow with your kids then you will know that a snowflake all starts with one speck of dust. In order for a snowflake or any form of precipitation to form, dust or debris needs to be present in the air. These tiny particles are called condensation nuclei.
Although snow may appear to be white, it is actually translucent. Similar to water or ice, snowflakes reflect light. If the light shines through one just right it might even create a rainbow. The ice crystals that make up individual snowflakes act as little prisms.
